Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the trade show is organized by the Consumer Technology Association every year in January at Las Vegas Convention Center, Nevada. This time at the CES 2018, the South Korean multinational conglomerate, Samsung, not only unveiled computers, smart TVs, and home appliances; but also revealed its initial foldable smartphones in order to select clients via a private meeting.
The news emerged through the published post via GizmoChina also points out that the tech company has showcased its first foldable smartphone with fold-in and fold-out designs in the meeting. The news, however, differs from our earlier news which we reported yesterday. While there has been a bundle of speculations and leaks about the upcoming Samsung foldable smartphones, yesterday through leaks, the device was reportedly revealed not to arrive anytime this year.
Samsung, last year, had revealed a foldable smartphone through the private conference held at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) event in 2017. As per speculations, Samsung might have revealed the upgraded version of Samsung foldable smartphones during the CES 2018 which was earlier shown at the MWC 2017.
Samsung invited various clients in order to gauge the customers’ response in the meeting. From what one of the exhibitors stated (who was present in the private viewing at the CES 2018 event), Samsung’s foldable phone sports a 7.3-inch foldable OLED screen. As per design, the smartphone has a bendable curvature of 1R with fold-in design, on this contrary, the fold-out design comes with a curvature of 5R.
This, however, indicates that both the foldable phones can be folded like a paper. According to the leaks so far, these Samsung foldable smartphones cannot feature a glass panel, when it comes to design. Instead, they will apparently sport polymer OLED. Furthermore, GizmoChina reports that the curvature implementation is a hard process and smartphones featuring foldable screen can readily break if it falls down. To assure durability Samsung’s R&D department dropped the devices a 20 million time a day! We may expect the device to come by the end of the year or in early 2019 until then stay tuned for further updates.
